Covid 19: Telangana Night Curfew Till May 1st

Covid 19 has emerged into a global crisis affecting the global economy on the whole. The pandemic is showing no signs of reducing and is creating massive havoc in the lives of people all over the world.

India, is confronting a deadly second wave, at present and the amount of spike in the cases has been horribly terrifying. The massive surge in the positive cases has been a cause of worry for all the State Governments.

Telangana is also under the horrific spell of the Covid second wave and the spike in the number of positive cases has been huge and a need for the reduction of cases seems desperately necessary.

Keeping in view of the current situation in Telangana, the High Court is highly dissatisfied with the way the State Government is dealing with the pandemic situation. Telangana on Tuesday reported 5926 fresh Covid cases and 18 deaths in the past 24 hours. Looking at the current statistics, the High Court expressed its strong displeasure and urged the State Government to take immediate solid action given the crisis.

The Telangana High Court headed by Chief Justice HimaKohli asked the Government to take immediate action against the Covid crisis by imposing a curfew or weekend lockdown in the State. The High Course also warned the Government that the decision has to be immediate failing which the Court will pass orders.

In response to this, the Government announced the Telangana night curfew in the state. The announcement came within hours of the High Court’s warning.

The Government imposed a night curfew till May 1 effective from April 20 9:00 p.m. The curfew would be between 9:00 p.m. to 5 a.m. The public is not allowed to wander on the roads after 9:00 p.m. unless it is an emergency.

The Government has given exceptions to essential services like hospitals, pharmacies, petrol pumps, water supply, sanitation, media, goods delivery, private security services and service sector.

Exceptional Cases

People with high medical emergencies, people travelling to airports, railway stations, bus stands, medical personnel and government officials are also a part of the exceptions.

Restaurants, shops, firms, offices have to be closed by 8:00 p.m. during the curfew.

Hopefully, this decision of the Government brings about a change in the current situation and lessens this harmful crisis.
